School Board Vice Chair, Randy Wolf, hosts onsite learning for Eagle Point High School Vet Medicine and Animal Anatomy students. Brian Wolf (brother) and Pam Pratt ventured to Eagle Point on Friday, September 24th from Lassen Community College to educate students with a hands-on field lesson.

 

Eagle Point High School teacher, Traci Dulany, took her Vet Medicine and Animal Anatomy classes to the onsite learning lesson that included ultrasound, vaccinations and deworming. The ultrasound was utilized to determine if the animal was pregnant and how far along she was. A total of 18 students were able to participate in the work session.

 

Taylor, an EPHS student, made a discovery on the ultrasound machine when her turn came. “I found something!” she screamed out with excitement. Taylor said during a short interview that she believes "this is the most live teaching experience you can take. It helps me determine what to do in the future." Taylor has always loved agricultural life and plans to be an Agricultural teacher or swine breeder as her post graduation career.
